Jivamukti Yoga

Namaste, This weekend I'll be heading out to Woodstock NY to spend time with my teachers David Life and Sharon Gannon. David and Sharon are longtime yogis and founders of the Jivamukti style of Yoga.  Jiva means soul, and Mukti means liberation.  The Jivamukti yogi practices to become liberated in this lifetime, and to help all beings be free of suffering.  Next time you are in NY city, head up to Union Square and visit their beautiful Yoga studio. So next week I'll be having some wonderful substitue teachers cover our classes. Jyoti will be teaching the Monday 4pm Yoga and Nia for life class in Cocnord, the Tuesday 6:30pm Lumina class in Wayland, and the Wednesday Bosse classes in Sudbury.  Linda Seik will be teaching the Thursday 5:30pm Yoga class in West Concord.  The Monday Half Moon Hill class in Acton, and the Thursday 9am Maynard class will not be held next week. I've got some great workshops planned for the fall, and there are still a few spots open in our Fall Yoga Retreat in western Mass.  I'm looking forward to sharing what I learn when I get back, and hear how nice your classes with Jyoti and Linda were. Om Shanti,  I'll see you in class. john

Waking

Required reading for anyone who has a body:   Waking: A Memoir A paraplegic Yoga teacher with much to share.  I'll be re-reading this book next time I feel challenged. From the web review: Matthew's mental awareness--as a result of a spinal cord injury--was literally knocked out of the lower two-thirds of his body. While doctors were able to keep him alive, he was not given the tools to reconnect his mind to his paralyzed body. Matthew describes how for years after the devastating accident, from the chest down, he experiences a "schism" or "a form of silence" between his mind and his body. During his first months in the hospital and later periods in intensive care units there was so much pain that leaving his body became a survival skill. These experiences alone catapulted Matthew into unknown territory when it comes to understanding the mind and body. From this understanding Matthew begins to practice, and eventually teach Iyengar Yoga. Take care, I'll see you in class. John
